“It is not in economic expansion, social improvements, or political progress, noteworthy as these may be, that the vindication of our stewardship entirely lies. It lies rather in the achievement of persuading indigenous peoples to realize the meaning of justice between man and man, and the inculcation of the spirit of respect for the rule of law and an independent judiciary, where the lowest and the poorest stand equal with the highest and the richest. This is he real worthwhile legacy of he British Empire.” – Sir Alan Burns (The “Last Imperialist”)
